Courtney Love doesn’t intend to reunite her alternative rock band Hole anytime soon. If ever again.

In a recent interview with Vogue, Love was asked if there will be “a proper Hole reunion” in the future. “No, absolutely not,” Love responded. “And you guys have gotta get over it.”

“Our old manager Peter Mensch calls once a year to ask about a reunion: ‘Hey, just doing my thing I do every year with you and Jimmy Page [of Led Zeppelin].’ And I’m so honored to be in that company, but it’s just not gonna happen,” she added.

Most recently, Courtney Love reformed Hole in 2010 by recruiting new musicians. The group released an album Nobody’s Daughter, the band’s first since 1998, and embarked on a worldwide tour.

In 2012, the original line-up of Hole had an unofficial reunion when Love was joined by guitarist Eric Erlandson, drummer Patty Schemel, and bassist Melissa Auf der Maur for a two-song after the screening of documentary Hit So Hard. This marked their first performance together in 14 years.

In the following years, Love hinted at a full reunion on multiple occasions. This included several rehearsals featuring Erlandson, Schemel, and Auf der Maur as well as social media teases.

Love also talked about plans for a reunion in 2019 and 2020, saying that she and the rest of the group are “definitely talking” about getting back together. Unfortunately, these plans never materialized, and it seems they are now thing of the past.
